Layouts I completed to Gina's Design Team featuring Paper from the Robins Nest

Robin Nast layouts - the zoo 12 x 12 layout
I chose the elephant paper for my background paper. And then I must see cut the tall giraffe out of the giraffe paper I added the giraffe to the base paper. The laser chip board I added to this layout, I chose the filmstrips from film strips one Shaped said, and enjoy the moment from words and phrases to shape set, I then chose the large gates from the gate shaped set, then to the front of the gates I added two tree ands and place them one on each side of the gate. The last chipboard I chose was an antique bicycle from the antique bikes set. Each of the laser chip boards was painted with distressed paint. Back behind the large gate I placed the tall giraffe and the ticket stubs. On top of the gate I added a photo and alphabets spelling Oregon zoo to complete the canvas. To the filmstrips I added several photos until my printer ran out of ink.

To the paws layout name Bailey Rose
The base paper from the robins nest I used the white and black paw print paper. Supplies juice from genus designs I used near number one which was painted with black distressed ink, the two IV corners name Nancy's ivies I painted with green distressed paint then the two saying phrases I chose came from words and phrases to each painted with  black distressed paint. Product I used from genus designs was cards stop doilies intricate. I placed the doilies under the mayor and added a photo of Bailey to the center of the mayor then added black Blaine around the silver oval inside the mirror. I then mounted a photo of Bailey in black and white card stock made that into a pocket and placed an information card inside the pocket of Bailey's name age and birth date and where she was born. I then added bling to several areas of the layout one of them being a heart Blaine under the phrases.

Missing in Action

Sorry that I have been missing in action. I went to be with a friend who son was killed in an accident.Then my laptop crashed, & to old to fix.Cheaper to buy a new one however on that note new computer means new software. Technology is continually improving putting some of us in the ice age. My desk top is so old that I had to install windows XP and  I miss not being able to take it with me.

These are some of the  things I have done & have not posted.

Honor  the circle canvas
this canvas was created for two reasons one is to honor the Native Americans whom I worked for and because I believe in what the on of the circle stands for. The Native Americans believe in their heritage. Family is very important the family represents some part of nature such as mother Earth father sky grandmother signed grandfather. The circle is a representation of tribal beliefs and they believe that life goes full circle. Most things are created within the circle the medicine wheel, the Native American dance is always done in the circle and the talking circle. I created this canvas starting out with white just so then I started layering various different layers such as chicken wire lace trams to create the effect that this canvas is showing.
The circle is divided into four parts, North South East and West. Each of those squadrons represent the physical, the spiritual, mental and emotional in the fourth one is social. In the center of the circle represents you the person also on this canvas I added a dream catcher as well as feathers from Gina’s Designs. 

Christmas in July mini albums
I created to mini albums the first one is a 6 x 6 mini album covered with paper from recollections called naughty or nice. Laser chip board from Gina’s designs adorn each page. Under each chipboard a photo can be placed on the photo mat. Each of the laser chip board pieces have been painted with distressed paint by counsel/Ranger.


The second mini album created was created using a micro-mini snow globe by Gina’s designs. The paper line used was also by recollections called naughty or nice. On each change I added a shaker tray to the global to hold a photo around the shaker I added a doily. To the snow globe stand I added an nameplate for the photo information. On the backside of the photo I added a pillow pocket. To the pillow pocket I added a journaling card. Every page in this photo album are identical the only difference being one of the least doilies is from a different paper within the paper line.
